VIDA Introduction Video

Welcome to VIDA!

We are a Magnet School serving students in Grades 6-8.

The theme of our school is to nourish the creative thinking skills of students and approach learning through the highly renowned Design Thinking process that will empower students to take what they have learned and apply those skills to create non-traditional solutions to yesterday's, today's, and tomorrow's problems.

We provide this design approach for innovation through:

STEM, Humanities, Creative Arts, Wellness, Electives

2015-16 Lottery Update

Phone calls will continue through the month of March. In April, Wait Listed families should receive a letter from the school identifying that they are on the Wait List. Due to life changes that often occur during the summer and fall, Wait List families may be contacted for enrollment up to October 1st, 2015.

At this point we have received over 600 Applications for the 2015-16 school year. You may still complete and submit an application. These "late" applications can only be considered if all families that submitted applications during the regular VUSD Magnet Application period have been exhausted from the Wait List, by grade level.
